The following are some of the general activities supported by the Foundation. This is not an exhaustive list and is subject to change.





The Sato Foundation provides support for cultural and educational programs, seminars, and outreach activities, primarily for youth, in order to develop and enhance life skills. Life skills refer to those skills that increase a person's understanding of their world, promote personal responsibility and promote the broader responsibilities inherent as a citizen of the world. These skills should also help to guide a person towards making a positive contribution to their community.



The Sato Foundation provides support for exchange activities that improve and foster communication between citizens of different countries, particularly between the U.S. and Japan. Specifically, exchanges should offer participants a chance to share views on common concerns, as well as an opportunity to discuss contemporary domestic and international issues that face the countries involved. Exchanges should involve particular communities or geographic regions. In the area of youth exchange, the Foundation encourages programs that offer young people an opportunity for serious, structured discussion and engagement on specific issues of common concern.
